1 1/16 Mile. The WINSTAR FARM EASY GOER. 3yo. Purse: $150,000. Post -- 11:35 a.m.
Nonna's Boy owns sprinter's speed and could play out as the swiftest of the swift. Donworth could be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Stanford is rested and training strongly.
1 1/16 Mile. Allowance. 3&up. Purse: $90,000.

11Spring to the Sky(L)122Castellano3-5-1Brown12-1
Mosler owns favorable stalker's style and has worked sharply since winning last. Spring to the Sky finished just two lengths behind top selection after chasing fast fractions; dangerous. Channel Marker could impact if pace meltdown ensues.
1 1/16 Mile. The OGDEN PHIPPS (Grade I). 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $1,000,000.
Untapable's 'A' game is too good for compact Phipps field. Princess Violet loves Belmont and makes peak start of form cycle. Rosalind moves to dirt for white-hot Chad Brown; very interesting.

Danzatrice has trained strongly since winning Prx Oaks last out; ready for prime time. Condo Commando was done in by hot fractions in Ky Oaks; very dangerous. Oceanwave rolls late and would be aided by swift internal splits.

7J Wonder(L)113Lezcano4-3-7McGaughey III10-1
Photo Call was victimized by soft flow and wide trip last time; call based on price. Tepin has won two in a row as a 4-year-old; big-time player. Coffee Clique won this race last year in lone start on Belmont sod; must consider.

2Tale of Verve(L)126Stevens2-1-2Stewart15-1
Materiality never had a chance in Ky Derby; extends Triple Crown drought to 37 years. Frosted was compromised by soft flow and poor ride in Derby; dangerous. American Pharoah deserves the adulation if able to become first Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.

Matterhorn packs potent late kick on 'A' game and rates the call in nightcap with scheduled post of 8:12 p.m.; for hardcore players only. Big Looie is riding a two-race winning streak for Navarro; very playable. Green Gratto is speedy and could prove very tough on a clear lead. Social Inclusion was soundly defeated by 'Looie' when an absurd 20 on the dollar last time; short price once again.
